Pecan Pie Bars

I like to have some kind of bars on hand to take with me when we go out, be it to the park or the store or where ever. It saves me from the grabby hands of the kids as we go through the grocery aisle, as well as from them wanting to share snacks with others on a play date. I would much rather have these type of snack on hand and not have them wanting to grab their hand into the box of goldfish crackers that other have provided.

This recipe is only sweetened with the dried dates, but it is still a treat in my book.  That being said,  I will absolutely give my kids Paleo treats all day over their processed garbage counterparts!

Pecan Pie Bars
2/3 C Dates
1 1/2 C Almond Flour
1/2 C Coconut Oil
3 Eggs
1 C Pecans Pieces

Preheat oven to 350. In a food processor, puree dates and coconut oil. 
Move mixture into a bowl and add in eggs and almond flour. Stir in pecan pieces and spread mixture into a coconut oil greased baking dish.
 Place in preheated oven and bake for 24-30 minutes.
(We like a chewyer bar over a cakey bar, so we did our for 24 minutes. ) Store bars in the fridge for them to last longer.


  1. Thanks for this recipe - it's delicious and three out of my four children love it (that's a very high rating!). I found it is best fresh out of the oven, or in the days following it is great grilled until warm and crunchy on top, with a drizzle of pure maple syrup. We had it for breakfast like that this morning!

  2. I'm so glad ya'll like them! I love that idea of grilling it. We also like them frozen, right out of the freezer.
